For Honor has announced a live stream will occur today showcasing 16 competitors but more importantly, it will show off some new heroes joining the game. You will be able to catch the full stream right here when it’s up. You can also head to For Honor’s Twitch channel and catch the stream there. The stream begins 5 p.m. ET/ 2 p.m. PT.
The 16 competitors will be:
- FSD Rikuto
- Karnage Clan
- Fairlight Excalibur
Ubisoft is planning to bring a lot of changes to For Honor for the start of its second season:
- Reduce the gap between high and low level gear
- Rebalance the Stats and Builds
- Tone down builds that are too powerful
- Address stats that are not useful or dominated by other stats on the same slot
- Have more meaningful builds
- Have more Stat bundle variety
- Show the stats values
- Introduce a new Epic Rarity
In order to encourage more players to try out new heroes, the experience received in end match has been permanently increased by 25 percent. One big criticism of the game was we never got to see the values of statistical improvements on our gear. That is being changed with season two and we’ll now see the stats. All of these changes show that Ubisoft is listening to player feedback but there’s still work to be done.
You will can read much more in-depth about the changes on the official For Honor website.
The new season of For Honor kicks off tomorrow, May 16, and adds new maps, new heroes and other content to go along with the above changes. We’ve learned the two new heroes are the Shinobi and the Centurion. The Shinobi will be joining the Samurai faction while the Centurion will be joining the Knight faction.
